Clifton Elementary School closing: Final bell to sound
Updated: June 21, 2011 - 12:40 pm
It’s the last day of school in Fairfax County and the last ever at Clifton Elementary, but the fight over the school’s future could take a new twist.
Some community leaders hope to re-open the facility as a charter school. The move would make it the first charter school in the county, and the proposed school would be the only elementary school in the county to offer an International Baccalaureate program.
The proposal still needs state approval.
The school board voted to close Clifton because of declining enrollment and the high cost of renovations.
